“Great place, nice staff.”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

The Virginian Suites was a very nice place to stay: cozy rooms, decent breakfast, and exceedingly nice staff. My stay lasted roughly four months, and I regularly found myself engaged in jovial conversation with people at the front desk. Conor Dunlavy, in particular, was a great guy.

If you want or need to be near Arlington National Cemetery this is it! We were at the gate of the base in literally minutes ! The rooms are spacious with full equipped kitchens . Parking was $12 a day & you can purchase breakfast for $6. They let us leave the car on check out day & take the complimentary shuttle to the circulator ($1) in to sight see. Staff is very nice . We will return to my fathers grave site & stay again. We had about 6-7 family members book there & I got compliments on the choice

It is not the most modern place, but the staff is helpful. You also get a full kitchen. The metro is a few blocks away, but they also run a shuttle to it if you don't feel like walking. There is also a daily shuttle to NFATC. The room and ride program is also great!

Happy holidays to you! We really appreciate your wonderful review on your stay at the Virginian Suites Arlington. I love hearing the compliments on our staff, they are truly the heart and soul of this place! The in-house amenities such as the full kitchen are a big plus, especially for a long term stay. Government workers can really feel at home here! The room and ride package is great for those that would like to include a car with their per diem rate. Also, our location makes getting around the DC area a very easy task, whether you are walking, Metro-ing, or driving! Thanks for choosing us for your trip, we're excited to see you again soon here at the Virginian Suites!

Virginian Suites were for the first time on the list of hotels offered by my daughter's university for their annual parents weekend. The four of us stayed for two nights in October and could not be happier with the experience. This is a former apartment building so the rooms are huge. We had a studio with two queen beds. The beds were comfy and large. There was a sofa, TV, and an office desk in the room. The bathroom was good size and I don't understand why people complain about small bathrooms or rooms. Everything was clean and well kept. The kitchen was great. We did not get to use it because we came for an event in DC and did not spend much time in the hotel room. We got a price special - $129 including parking and all you can eat breakfast. This deal was so much better than the hotel we stayed at last year, the Hyatt Arlington. The continental breakfast was delicious. Boiled eggs, sandwiches with bacon or sausage and eggs, different types of cereal, danishes, fresh fruit, milk, tea, coffee, juices, fruit yoghurt, cereal bars, cream cheese, bagels, bread, the list goes on. By the reception desk there was a stand with coffee and tea and lemonade, a nice touch. The staff is courteous and helpful. The pool was closed for the season, but the small gym was opened. When we visited on the weekend the shuttle from the hotel to the Arlington Metro stop was not running, but we drove into the town and had no problem finding parking in DC. I will definitely come back to this place and will recommend it to my friends and family.

Hello to you and your family! We are so happy you chose us for your parents' weekend visit! It sounds like our hotel worked out perfectly for the whole family. You are correct in that our property used to be an apartment building, so you get a lot of space for the money paid! The kitchens come in handy, especially for families looking to save some money on eating out or if you're in town for a longer stay. I'm glad you were able to get parking included for the parents' weekend special, it is normally $12 a night. Thank you for the great compliments on our continental breakfast! We offer a wide variety of items, including a good amount of healthy options. It is a shame that you missed out on our pool, you will definitely have to come visit us during the summer time; the pool feels great during those hot and humid months! Thanks again for the amazing review, we do hope that you come back and visit us again soon at the Virginian Suites Arlington!

We stayed at Arlington Suites during Thanksgiving week. It was a great place - great location - clean rooms - but I was most impressed by the staff. When we checked in we were greeted by the friendliest young lady - Sara - who answered all our questions with enthusiasm and even gave us some information about places to eat that the locals like that we didn't even ask about. Every time she saw us she asked about our stay and always had a smile on her face. The rest of the staff was great too but Sara really made a good impression on us. We will be back.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Virginian Suites, and for my future visits to DC I'll be staying here again. The location is a very nice and quiet area, and our view was a beautiful city view of Arlington. The moment I walked in my room, I pulled all the blinds up in the kitchen, living room, and bedroom to get a good view of the city. Our room was a very nice one bedroom suite with a kitchen. We were able to cook dinner one night and invite friends over, and there was ample room for everyone to sit comfortably. Dishes and everything that you needed were already provided. All you needed to purchase was food and spices.

Our walk to the Metro was about 10 minutes away and we rode downtown to see the monuments and also to go to a bar. The staff at the desk were very friendly and helpful, and sometimes you don't get that as you travel further north. As a choice employee myself, I truly value other nice staff at hotels.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling and want all the amenities of being at home. I will definitly be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for a "city view" room. The views from the bedroom and living room windows are beautif...

Hello there! Thank you for choosing us for your stay in the DC area, your review means a lot to us (especially as a fellow Choice employee!). We really appreciate the nice comments you had regarding our front desk staff! They love knowing that they helped make your stay even better.

As you pointed out, our location is perfect for going into DC and doing some sightseeing. We are only a 10 minute walk away from the Rosslyn Metro, but you can also use our complimentary shuttle to get to the Metro (it operates Monday through Friday).

It sounds like the suite worked out great for you, I'm glad that you saw it as your home away from home. We want our guests to feel as comfortable as possible, which includes having larger suites and amenities such as a full sized kitchen. It is great for entertaining your friends as well!

Thank you again for the great review, we hope to see you again soon here at the Virginian Suites Arlington!

Recently made our annual Veterans Day pilgrimage to Washington DC with some of my military classmates to honor our fallen friends. We arrived at the Virginia Suites to begin our two-day event and were greeted at the front desk by Sara. She set the tone for our stay with her smile and truly elated greeting. Even though there was considerable noise and activity in the lobby due to some exchange student excitement we felt our arrival was the most important event of the day. Every front desk so be so welcoming.
